Bike collecting dust? Needing a service/repair? We can help, for free!
This blog post is regarding the Scotland Cycle Repair Scheme, which is being managed by Cycling UK and is funded by The Scottish Government. Cycling UK have released another round of funding to Recyke-a-bike, so we'd like to invite people who need their bikes repaired or serviced, to bring them in. If you could spread the word to others, this would be much appreciated.
The initiative is designed to encourage old bikes to come out of storage and back onto our roads, as well as keeping well-used bikes pedalling smoothly and safely. With new cycling infrastructure being completed around the Forth Valley, there are more safe routes for cyclists. This scheme may help more people get out on their bikes, more often.
Inclusivity and accessibility are at the heart of the scheme. All cycles are welcome including:
· adult and child bikes
· non-standard and adapted bikes
· people who use manual wheelchairs are also eligible to access free repairs
Primarily, the scheme is aimed at people who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford these repairs. No voucher or registration is required – just contact us at Recyke-A-Bike. Repairs of up to £50 per standard bike and £100 for a non-standard bike are available on a first come basis until the fund has been exhausted.
Individuals looking to have their bikes repaired can bring them to our premises on the corner of Ladysneuk Road and Alloa Road in Stirling (no appointment necessary).
Recyke-a-bike is a registered charity – who aim to improve lives by bikes. Let us help you by fixing your bike!
We are open Monday to Saturday from 9am until midday and then 1-5pm in the afternoon.
